Software Engineer

May - August 2020 • San Diego, CA

I wish there was more time to get to know my coworkers since it was online.

Advice

Never be afraid to ask questions.

Finance Intern

May - August 2019 • Mountain View, CA

What I liked

Intuit has a great culture. The company is mission driven, and employees are generously compensated for their work. Intuit exemplifies their company values.

What I wish was different

There isn't much home-grown management. Most middle managers have a background in IB or consulting, thus it is difficult to attain management promotions if you start at Intuit. I worked with multiple employees who had worked at Intuit for 5 to 10 years and still hadn't attained even a low-level manager title.

Advice

Bring your technical skills to your internship. Intuit will reward you for being innovative on the job. Be proactive, not just reactive to your manager's requests.

Small Business Consultant

May - August 2019 • Fredericksburg, VA

What I liked

Real experience working through full sail cycle from lead generation to processing sale. A team-based selling approach where you are allotted the opportunity to share your successes and failures to benefit the team and improve campaign success. Additionally, it is encouraged you spend 10% of your working outside your immediate role to improve yourself, your team, or the company as a whole.

What I wish was different

The internship was a great experience. The team clicked immediately and there were plenty of opportunities to network at events like baseball games, bowling, and escape rooms. One area of discerning was the long commute to the office. The office is located between DC and Richmond in a small town called Fredricksburg. The intern group opted to live in Richmond which entails an hour commute. The company assigned groups to rental cars covered gas and accommodations in Richmond so still a good trade-off.

Advice

Senior and executive leadership on-site is excited to meet and share experiences with interns. Make sure to go out of your way to seek the advice of leaders because they will take the time to meet with you and you will learn from their incredible experiences.

Software Engineering Intern

June - August 2019 • Mountain View, CA

What I liked

Interning as a front-end engineer at Intuit was a fantastic experience. Intuit truly values personal growth both as an engineer and as a person. My team was willing to spend time teaching me whatever was needed. As an intern, I was able to push products to production for millions of customers to use. I was challenged to learn as much as possible and ended up learning new front-end frameworks, Intuit's A/B testing platform, and how to build a widget from scratch. Additionally, Intuit made the experience super fun by giving its interns cars for the summer, holding an Intern Summit, and (nearly weekly) events that benefited and were fun for all of the employees!

What I wish was different

I wish that Intuit was based in San Francisco rather than Mountain View. I didn't love the South Bay.

Advice

As an intern, you're thrown into a company with a lot of moving parts. I would recommend making a conscious effort to get to know as many people, teams, tools, and groups as possible. Try to have a coffee chat with someone, at least once a week! And don't be afraid to attend any events or workshops, even if you have no experience in that area!

Software Engineer

May 2019 • San Diego, CA

What I liked

I really enjoyed the work I got to do. I was put on a team with the goal of migration the service to utilizing Kubernetes, and in the process of doing so I had the opportunity to learn a ton about kubernetes as well as work with an amazing group of individuals. Being the one of the first individuals to pick up kubernetes on the platform, I was also given the chance to streamline the process for new services and really set the pattern for the use of kubernetes in the company.

What I wish was different

I wish I had spent more time working on the service itself so I could further improve my skills in Java coding.

Advice

Something I learned from Intuit that I would say applies to everyone, fall in love with the problem and not the solution. I had the opportunity to be one of the firsts to adapt kubernetes to a service in the Identity Platform. In doing so I also came across several problems which had many solutions, and the decisions were impactful as future services would utilize this service as the building block for what to do. I had the opportunity to work with several individuals in the process of refining the solutions to find one that works best for the teams across Identity and not just the service I was working on.

Software Engineer

January 2017 • Mountain View, CA

What I liked

I loved how Intuit was able to host an info session with Intuit. Was able to stand out as an applicant amongst a sea of graduate students.

What I wish was different

Though I was fortunate enough to stick out amongst graduate students, many of my peers were unaware of info session happening outside of the career fair. Reaching out to the computer science club could go a long way in getting the news out there.

Advice

Whiteboard interview preparation cannot be rushed. I took time everyday for two months to prepare for my interviews so when the right employer came along, I was ready to hit it out of the park.

Software Engineering Intern

May - August 2018 • Mountain View, CA

What I liked

I loved the culture and people. Everyone was invested in helping me learn new things. They also had me work on projects that didn’t feel like busy work, so I felt like my work was meaningful. On my 3rd day I had already written code that went to production for thousands of customers.

What I wish was different

I wish they had informed me my location and team placement earlier, but it all worked out great in the end.

Absolutely everything. I loved the company, managers, co-workers, and co-interns.

Software Engineer Co-op

June - December 2018 • San Diego, CA

What I liked

The culture at Intuit is the perfect blend of informal and structured. If you need help, people are always willing to help (at least, when they don't have more pressing things to worry about). At the same time, it's always clear what you're supposed to be doing, so you're never left standing around doing nothing, waiting for work.

What I wish was different

There's a lot of institutional knowledge that's necessary to do... Anything, really. A good chunk is written out on the company wiki, but a lot is hard to find.

Advice

Ask questions! You're there to learn as well as work, and everyone needs some time to settle into a new role. It's better to ask someone who's been working with the code for 5 years than spend a week spinning your wheels.
